Samsung Wireless Adapter WIS12ABGNX

by Bandula_G / October 20, 2014 1:35 AM PDT

I have a Samsung TV Model 46B8000XF. The instruction manual recommends that I use a Samsung Wireless adapter WIS09ABGN. However, I have purchased adapter WIS12ABGNX. Can this work with my TV?

Is this a 2009 TV?

If so I suggest you forget adding internet connections to a dated TV since it was only the beginning of that effort. For the same dollars you should be able to get a current, more capable internet system and WiFi with a newer BluRay player.

Samsung wifi LAN Adapter WIS 09ABGN

Thanks for the advice. My TV model is Samsung UA46 B8000XF. Apparently (as per advice from Samsung) WIS 12ABGNX can only be used on models C and above. The TV manual recommends WIS 09ABGN but these are not available from Samsung or other dealers. I am really keen to get internet connection to the TV via wifi. There are refurbished WIS 09ABGN adapters on eBay, but not sure whether these would work.

Can you advise?

I advise against adding the USB dongle to such a dated model. For the same money I can get a current experience with BluRay players.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
